"It felt as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I finally talked to someone who understood what I was going though."

My name is Matt and I am a 15-year-old trans male. I use him/he pronouns and I identify as male. I live with my mum (Fiona), dad (James) and 18-year-old sister (Becky). I have a 27-year-old sister (Charlotte) and a 3-year-old niece (Mia). I am just about to start my final year at secondary school (SCARY!). I love fantasy films such as Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter, I also read many famous titles e.g. Skulduggery Pleasant and The Hobbit. I am a Gamer, I play on Xbox and play many games from COD to the Batman Arkham series. Cycling is one of the few sports I like doing as well as swimming and rugby. I am also a social media user, for example, I use YouTube to share my story about being trans. I also vlog about my daily life.
